Compared to Reagan, Obama is shrinking government spending

From Krugman, Reagan vs. Obama - increases in government spending:

Reagan, of course, is the blue - with huge increases in government spending per capita, and Obama is the red - with smaller increases, and significant decreases in state and local spending due to deep recession.  Mind you, these low rates of spending in an ongoing high-unemployment, reduced-consumer-demand depression are not a good thing - but the facts accentuate the hypocrisy and lies of the GOP and "Tea Party" crazies.
